Lauren's First and Goal is a 501c3 charitable organization, a labor of love created in 2004 by John and Marianne Loose in honor of their daughter, Lauren, a pediatric brain and spinal cord tumor survivor. The Loose family started the foundation as a way to help other families who are battling childhood cancer.
Since it's inception, LFG has raised more than 1.8 million dollars towards its mission to provide financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, to offer financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and to increase awareness of the disease. These goals are made possible through the funding gained through LFG football camps and charitable contributions.
